It may not have a 4K screen, nor even a 1080p one for that matter, but if you still yearn for a day when phones didn’t feel like tiny tablets, when one-handed operation was a joy, the 4.6-inch 720p screen on the new Sony Xperia Z5 Compact may just be exactly what you need. We just put the phone head-to-head with its big brother the Z5, and now we’re spending a little one-on-one time with the baby of the Z5 family, with our own Z5 Compact hands-on.

Admittedly, the Z5 Compact isn’t entirely the dream of a flagship phone, simply scaled down to a smaller package. Sony makes a few cuts, and beyond the shrinking screen resolution (and really, we’re fine with 720p at this size), the phone also loses a gig of RAM, dropping to 2GB.

Beyond that, we also see some design changes, and the Z5 Compact doesn’t have quite the same premium build as its larger sibling. Minor quibbles, perhaps, as we’re still talking about a tiny phone with a flagship-quality Snapdragon 810 SoC, a big battery, and an impressive-looking camera. Check it all out in our hands-on video:
